“As of 8AM this morning, National Grid has reported two residential power outages.

Superintendent Belson will make a determination by noon on Sunday whether there will be school on Monday.
E911 continues to respond to calls without incident.
Mayor Mcglynn has directed the school and building departments to evaluate the snow load on school roofs and take the necessary action.
Current obstacles include people throwing snow back into the street. This is creating a public safety hazard, which is subject to a fine. We do appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation during this threatening and historic storm.
